Talent Dispensary Open for Business

DISPENSARY CLOSETALENT, Ore. — Talent’s first medical marijuana dispensary is now open, despite the city’s moratorium on this type of business.

The owners are able to legally open because they filed for a business license and had it approved about a month before the moratorium took effect. That enabled “Green Valley Wellness” be grandfathered in.

On Friday morning there were 13 people in the waiting room, which speaks to the demand for this type of business in that area.

Tonight on NewsWatch 12 at 5 and 6, we’ll show you how the community is responding to the new storefront.
